Leadership Coaching

Leadership Coaching

In today’s globalized and complex business environment, there is a need for more ethical/social responsibility and inner-balance. In order to lead more effectively, leaders need to develop new awareness and be more in touch with themselves.

Goodman Coaching provides Personal Leadership Coaching to mid-career managers and professionals. To support them navigate changes in the context of challenging international business environments.

We support people in gaining more insight and to develop new competencies.

The emphasis is on the psycho-spiritual aspects of leadership, and how these influence our behavior and productivity. By becoming aware of our inner-assumptions and thought patterns, we can become more effective leaders.

Some of the themes addressed:

  • Identifying one’s strengths and area’s to develop using various personality profiles and models (Leadership Circles, Jung’s Types model, Strengths Finder,…).
  • Enhancing emotional intelligence through self-awareness, self-management and social competencies. Developing self-awareness can be done through various practices (journaling, writing one’s life history, mindfulness, non-verbal/creative exercises). Social skills include communication, networking, and political awareness.
  • Spiritual Leadership: Finding a deeper meaning at work, creating a compelling vision, engaging one’s values to create a better world. We  collaborate with the International Institue for Spiritual Leadership (http://iispiritualleadership.com/)
  • Models of adult development: How do we keep growing and developing through our life-span?
  • Female Leadership.
  • Maintaining a healthy work/life balance.

Being a part of leadership training program, I had a privilege to work with Vanessa as a coachee for almost a year. I highly recommend her as a coach. Great listener, calm and considerate in her coaching style, she has a rare skill of asking powerful and thought-provoking questions that really make you find answers in yourself.

Vanessa has an excellent quality for a coacher: listener! She can adjust her method accordingly, as the customer’s needs reveal along the process. This guarantees good results and satisfaction.
